I have been working at Parsons Brinckerhoff as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

I am able to continue my career with a firm who has access to resources that only a leader can provide, to work side by side with people from whom I can learn valuable lessons, gain access to a vast and diverse network of talented professionals, and enjoy unparalleled opportunities.

Cons

Feast or famine. Work is steady for a reasonable period of time, and then it trails off without a backlog to keep all employees busy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide more effort in the marketing department to keep employees working steady. It's realized this is not always realistic.

    I worked at Parsons Brinckerhoff full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good hours, benefits, location, really nice people, and interesting work. My dept. closed so I was on loan to several other departments until I found a home.

    Cons

    Left for a better salary, but would have gone back. I like it there that much!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. I left too long ago, 1990s.

    I worked at Parsons Brinckerhoff full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Stability, local management is generally quite good within their power.

    Cons

    Noncompetetive compensation, bureaucracy, career stagnation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall PB was a decent company to work for. However, as a satellite office, my location felt like we were always forced to go to New York with bowl in hand, begging "Please sir, may I have some more?" whenever anything was needed. It was a nice break from the cutthroat realm of pure tech jobs, but I did feel like my career was at the mercy of a bureaucratic dinosaur while I was there.
